You can use your garden's edible flowers as long as they haven't been sprayed with pesticides. They're also sold at many grocery stores; tasty ones include nasturtiums, daylilies, pansies, pinks, borage, roses, or flowers from any culinary herb. Test kitchen tip: For a shortcut, substitute one bag of herb-mix salad for the greens listed here, adding more of your favorites to taste.

Directions
  1. Wash and gently pat dry butterhead lettuce, all herbal greens, and edible flowers. Tear apart butterhead lettuce and any large-leafed herbs. In a large salad bowl, toss together all greens except flowers.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together all dressing ingredients. Pour over herb salad and gently toss until well coated. Garnish with edible flowers and serve immediately.
